Entertainment industry going retro, Radiohead charging ‘worthy’ price

Josh Rouse

HOLY HANNAH MONTANA! Is it just me, or does Britney Spears’ new music video remind you a little bit of Sasnak’s in North Topeka? Between that and Kevin Federline, I’d say she’d fit right in.

Radiohead has announced that its new CD “In Rainbows” will be available to purchase on the Internet for whatever fee the purchaser feels worthy… even free. So basically, it’s free but Radiohead wants you to donate however much money you feel the song deserves. Finally, after all these years, someone has actually figured out a way to tax stupid people. Genius!

Garth Brooks is coming to Kansas City for a once-in-a-lifetime concert… or should I say nine times in a lifetime? After the first one sold out, they just kept adding more concerts so everyone could see him. Wonder if he does birthdays and weddings, too?

The Eagles are coming out with a new album for the first time in 28 years! Have you seen the music video for its first single “How Long”? The years haven’t exactly been good to Joe Walsh…

Speaking of comebacks, the Spice Girls have announced a reunion tour in December and a greatest-hits album. The group also plans to release a new single, written mostly by Geri Halliwelll (Ginger Spice).

OK, so the Spice Girls have jobs, a Clinton is running for president and the Hanson kids are back in the news… This is 1996 all over again. Hope nobody clones a sheep this time.

You guys have been great. Enjoy Bruce Springsteen.
